I forgot to give the final order date for Holiday Tamales
So I forgot to mention in our last email that the final date for the holiday tamale orders is December 17th. If you are going to order tamales, please get your order in on the 17th or before and we can take care of you. Tamales will be ready for for pick-up on the 22nd, but Shevawn can help you with those logistics when you email her at email@example.com.
Again, they are $36/dozen and we can do sides for you so that you can make a full meal. I’m ordering some for our Christmas dinner.
Here is the description of the tamales we are offering again: We have a vegetarian and a meat option. Our Vegetarian option (also vegan) is Roasted Delicata squash with red onion and black beans. Our meat option this year is Tomatillo braised pork shoulder with roasted carrots, yellow onion and carmelized Granny Smith apples. Thank you Kiki and Sabino for making delicious tamales!
I also want to let you all know that Mississippi had some water damage during the last big rains, and we have solved the problem, but we are closed for a few days to do some repairs….We will reopen on this Friday, the 14th at 11am….Hawthorne is open during this closure though, so you can still get your carnitas fix!
Thank you and happy holidays!
KC in Guatemala
KC was working as the student coordinator for a Spanish language school called PLQE (proyecto linguistico quetzalteco de español) as well as its sister school called La Escuela de La Montaña. Both schools are run by a collective of Guatemalan Spanish teachers whose goal is to address some of the harsh realities faced by Guatemalans. They do this by providing living wages in an area whose economic potential is almost non-existent as well as by teaching foreign students about the political, economic and social realities of life (both current and past) in Guatemala. Students from all over the world are attracted to these schools not only to learn the Spanish language, but to do so within this social justice and human rights context.
Nice work KC! Thank you for bringing back what you learned to improve our community.
